Is there REALLY much difference between entry level MTBs?

Recommended Posts

I have just moved jobs & there are THREE(!!!) bike shops nearby... so of course I have been into all of them, with the purpose of looking at an entry level mountain bike - in the $600-$900 range.

Are there really any differences between Giant, Merida, Trek etc..? I am just looking to commute.

simple answer is no, although the giant may be better value

compare the components.

Alternative is higher spec second hand

Yep, I bought a polygon xstrada 8.0 18 months ago.  From memory I paid 1k and that was delivered to Karratha in about three days from purchase.  Haven’t had an issue with it and it cops a hiding up here
